‘I WANT more’ is the message from Pars debutant Cammy Gill.

The young shot-stopper emerged from the bench during last Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Buckie Thistle to make his first senior appearance for the club he has been with since the age of 10.

The only downside from his debut was his parents were not there to witness it.

However, they were simply following orders from the highly-rated 19-year-old who didn’t think he would feature in the Irn Bru Cup tie for Allan Johnston’s side.

“My mum and dad were going to come up for the game and I told them not to bother!,” Gill told Press Sport.

“It was their anniversary so I didn’t want them travelling up for nothing.”

Following the departure of David Hutton, the youngster now deputises for Sean Murdoch, who he is eager to fight for the number one jersey after replacing him on 64 minutes during the Buckie win.

“I want more. Buckie was just a taster," he said. “You aspire to guys like Murdo (Sean Murdoch) who is playing every week for a club the size of Dunfermline.

“Murdo is brilliant.

“He really is different class and keeps the boys going on the field and in the dressing room.

“It is definitely encouraging to receive praise from him.

“He always sets the standard in training and on the park.

“I’m now at the stage where I’m pushing him as much as he is pushing me to do better.

“I don’t want to be number two.

“No-one wants to be number two.

“The gaffer signed me to push Murdo and that’s what I’m going to do.

“It’s all down to myself. As long as I’m doing my bit it’s all I can do.”

After an intense week of training, Gill was "gutted" he didn’t see his name included in Allan Johnston’s starting 11 but knew he had done everything he could to earn it.

“From Monday to Friday I don’t think I could’ve trained any better.

“I was happy to get some minutes and be involved.

“At 3-0 up I had that thought that he (Allan Johnston) might put me on.

“I was sitting on the bench and he just turned around and I just saw him stare at me.

“He gave me the shout so I went for a quick two minute warm-up and then I was straight on the pitch.

“I got a few texts from Brian Potter, Stephen Wright and other coaches I have worked with over the years after it.

“They’ve always been great with me.

“I’m improving all the time and I just need that weekly game time now.

“Obviously there’s no under-20s this season, so it is hard to find that match fitness.

“I know that sounds strange coming from a goalkeeper but it’s more mental than physical.

“Hopefully, there will be friendly matches coming up to get that time.

“As you saw on Saturday, there’s a lot of boys who are more than capable of stepping in. But the boys are flying and there’s no taking them out.”

Gill signed with the club on a deal that runs to 2019 and is highly thought of at East End Park with top-flight teams keeping tabs on him.

He was a regular in John Potter’s under-20 side before being loaned out to Arbroath in March last season, where he gained insight and tips from Ricky Gomes and encouragement from boss Dick Campbell.

Speaking of the loan he said: “It was nice to get out and into a new environment to see how I would cope.

“Dick Campbell was brand new with me. It was class working with him as he always made you laugh every single day. He was something else.”
